Just curious. With his election next year (2012), i was wondering how many people have been happy with what he has done so far and if you will support him (so long as he doesn't screw up to bad from now to then) in his reelection.
No, I dislike his economic policy, his (illegal) immigration policy, and him keeping (and amping up) certain acts passed by the bush administration which I believe only serve to take away the rights of americans.
I would not support him at all, though I think a mainstream republican would be just as bad. I feel the 2 party system is a shame, it forces people to choose which rich corporate puppet they want to appear to rule them, while the real decisions made by the wealthy people behind the scenes remain the same, whether a dem or the GOP get power.
@rein: I think we do like you guys a bit better now, Without George (can't find the real door) W Bush jr America seems less like a cop nation. But i can't really say anything about the president himself since i know pretty much nothing about American economics. but for the rest in a international sense i can say he's not bad but not anything special either.
It's harder for me to keep up on him as I don't live in the US anymore, and he is something of a disappointment to me (he's pretty center-right overall, and I'm very left leaning). That said, he's still worlds better than Bush, or the McCain/Palin option. He's actually accomplished a few big things, and at least openly opposes torture as opposed to tacit approval from the Bush administration. The stance he makes on the matter does matter to some degree.
He's certainly better than the past president or the current alternatives, or the crazy libertarians. But he's still too center-right for me to really be a huge fan of him as a president. At least he can actually deliver a speech without making me embarrassed to tell people I used to live in America.
